The Zeta Tau Chapter of Sigma Nu
From 1954 until 1976 our fraternity was the Zeta Tau chapter of the national Sigma Nu fraternity. We used to have more Sigma Nu related imagery and information on our website because we wanted to ensure that our Sigma Nu brothers felt welcomed and included on this website.
In 2004 we were contacted by a representative of the national organization requesting that we remove the majority of the information about Sigma Nu from our website. They apparently felt that we were inappropriately claiming a present affiliation with their organization. While this saddened us, we did feel obligated to accede to their request, since we don't have the wherewithal to deal with any formal legal action they might have been willing to take. We certainly had no intention of creating a false impression of some relationship between our organizations: since 1976 we have gone our separate ways and have had no formal relationship of any sort.
Because there is a clear and documented history of the relationship between our current organization and Sigma Nu, we feel that it is appropriate to retain mention of this on our website on this and a few other pages on the site. Additionally, to recognize those of our alumni who were Sigma Nus, a stylized miniature of the Sigma Nu star is placed next to their names in the Membership Directory. However, apart from these things, we regret to be able to show little else involving our time as a part of Sigma Nu.
If you are an alumnus of the Zeta Tau chapter of Sigma Nu, please understand that we definitely do welcome you to the website and accord you the same membership status as any alum of this organization.
